Major improvements needed to B1040 Wheatsheaf Crossroads (Main road Somersham to St Ives)

For many years local safety groups have been campaigning to try and make the vast improvements needed to this junction and time and time again they have come up against obstacles and rejection.

The crossroads are in desperate need of better signage and either traffic lights or a roundabout. 

I've been travelling along this road for the last 18 years and in that time I have seen some horrendous accidents, lots of near misses and with the traffic increasing year on year the problem is only getting worse.

On Tuesday this week we attended a local safety group meeting to discuss this specific issue and concern and it was extremely disappointing and frustrating to hear that the group have been battling for years to get improvements done to this road. Despite their extensive efforts improvements haven't been authorised by the council/highways. The stats are there in black and white and the number of accidents in the last month in particular is scary. Another devastating accident this evening and that just shows the problem will not go away.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE sign this petition in particular if you live in Somersham, St Ives and any of the surrounding villages. We need a change to protect ourselves, our families and our friends.
Together we have to try and make a difference
